5.0 out of 5 stars MY FAVOURITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME, 14 April 2003
This review is from: The Silence Of The Lambs [VHS] [1991] (VHS Tape)
The Silence of the Lambs is based on the best-selling novel by Thomas Harris. The movie opens with FBI Trainee Clarice Starling making her way through an obstacle course in Quantico. She then makes her way to her boss Jack Crawford. He comes up with a job for her, to go and interview Hannibal Lecter who is locked away in an asylum in Baltimore, hoping that he may have some information on the man known as “Buffalo Bill” who is murdering women across the country and then removes their skins. The first scene with Lecter and Starling is quite memorable. He toys with her like a puppet until she is near breaking point. It is then when we realise that Lecter may very well know the identity of Buffalo Bill. The result leads to a cat and mouse game between the two leads who deliver knockout performances. Director Jonathan Demme keeps the tension moving with “on the edge of your seat” moments, such as the doorbell scene and the escape. He delivers memorable performances from Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins. Demme along with Cinematographer Tak Fujimoto use the camera work very cleverly. We see things from Clarice’s eyes and view things how she sees them (Raspail’s head). The Silence of the Lambs went on to win five Oscars – Best Actor (Hopkins), Best Actress (Foster), Best Screenplay (Ted Tally), Best Director (Demme) and Best Picture. Overall I’d rate this movie 10 out of 10. Pity about Hannibal! But at least Red Dragon makes up for it.
